Virginia.......Here We Come!

It's funny how when we are little we can't wait to grow up and move out and be on our own, then when we are all grown up and on our own we can't wait to go back and spend all our time with our parents.

Noah and I are super duper lucky to be able to go back to Virginia for 2 1/2 months this summer. We will be staying with my parents which I am super excited about. My mom has a craft room with nothing but scrapbooking stuff. I can't wait to spend time with her there just talking and creating together. Of course the beach and the pool are very important places that we will frequent often.

We are leaving in 8 days (7 days and a wake up). I made a paper chain to count down the days and have been packed for about a week now. Plane tickets are already bought and just waiting to be used. Noah is packing his skateboard so that he can skate all over my parents neighborhood.

I am so excited to see all of my family and meet two little ones who have come into the family who I haven't met yet. I am so excited to see my other nieces and nephew too. They are all so adorable. I am looking forward to great friends, lots of food, and great conversation. June 1st can't get here soon enough.
On a sad note, Chris isn't coming. He is taking Spring classes so that he can graduate on time and then will be doing some Army training as well. I know that as an Army wife I will need to get use to him not being around all the time, but this is going to be hard. Chris and I have been married for almost 4 years now. We will not be together for our 4 year anniversary. We won't be together for father's day. 2 1/2 months apart is definitely going to be a challenge for me so I am counting on my family and friends to keep me busy so that I don't think about it too much.

Virginia......................HERE WE COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fun Run 2011

Noah's school had a fun run for students and their families. Noah and Chris got 53rd place out of 600+ kids. Noah was super happy that Chris was able to go and he said that Chris helped him along the way. It was a 2 1/2 mile run and they did it in about 25 minutes. Chris is such an amazing father and I am so happy that him and Noah have the close relationship that they have.

The picture above is before the race. Noah was so glad that Chris could run with him today!
This is of Noah and his friends before the race goofing off.
And the picture once they were done. They did such a great job. I was very proud of them both.
